mitt romney supporter, phil musser, co-anchor of cnbc's squawk box, "the new york times" andrew ross sorkin, jen ben dri of "the huffington post" and former white house deputy press secretary bill burton who runs the obama super pac, priorities usa action. mitt romney the only man standing in illinois today, as newt gingrich campaigns in louisiana and rick santorum is in pennsylvania. but with team romney these days, is there even such a thing as a decisive win? phil, i want to go to you first on this. and these numbers, i think, are somewhat staggering, if you look at politico reporting in illinois mitt romney outspending rick santorum 7-1. chicago, he's outspending santorum 21-1. i want to unpack the chicago numbers first because why spend that mump money in chicago? isn't that romney territory already or is this a sign of a campaign not letting anything go? >> that's a good question. the one thing to know about illinois is that 70% of the vote in the illinois primary comes from north of the interstate 80 that cuts the state in half. or the bulk of the vote comes from, it come

romney go back to the lab and emerge with mitt romney 2.0, this is "now." joining me today, kurt anderson, host of studio 360 radio and john harwood, karen finney, and political analyst, john heileman. last night, mitt romney won the most states and extended his overall delegate lead to more than 200, but the bottom line is that he has not locked up the nomination, is he becoming a stronger candidate or a weaker one? folks? my thinking here is that this could be a pivot point for the team romney, not just going back to the lab but refining a message, making him a stronger candidate, there's a contention out there that he has been bloodied and bruised but this could be good. >> i'm feeing like we have read that and said that five or six times eer already. the question was would newt gingrich make him a better candidate. so far, i've not seen what we have seen in the democratic race as hillary and obama duked it out. obama ended up being a stronger candida candidate, but along with that we saw turn out and excitement in the democratic party only to up, which helped in the general.

if this drags on much longer. that's why i think we need to coalesce aroundern mitt romney and focus on the big task at hand which is defeating barack obama in the fall. >> ben is, basically paul ryan is saying it would be counterproductive not to endorse mitt romney. >> you know, he actually not in that clip but he did say one important thing earlier. he said i didn't support bob dole and john mccain, i am supporting romney. romney is a real conservative. it was not the most whole hearted blessing but it was a real blessing. >> i guess i wonder how much in the end this helps. i mean, we can talk about wisconsin and how that's going to help him or not help him in the state on tuesday. broadly speaking, sam, we have -- there have been a few endorsements this week, jeb bush, we have george h.w. bush, jim demint putting a stamp of approval on romney. chris cillizza makes the case these matter more for mitt romney than any of the wins in the primaries coming up. >> i think that's the case. everyone in the republican establishment is behind the idea romney will be their candidat

saying that this is on this trajectory the beginning of the end of romney becoming the nominee and having the delegates in hand before tampa. >> the beginning of the end says mark halperin. michael steele, you once said that mitt romney, the brother just can't bake the cake. it looks like the oven may be hot enough for romney. let's look at the winner board. romney at 47% of the vote in illinois. rick santorum at 35%. ron paul at 9% is, gingrich at 8%. more staggering i guess is the delegate total romney at 485, santorum at 193, gingrich at 137, paul at 34. what do you make of it? >> i agree with park. he's clearly and always been kind of the guy to beat and been out there, but it doesn't mean you're not going to have tensions going into this convention that i still don't believe he'll have 1144 when he gets to tampa. he'll have to negotiate that. i don't see how he wins 50 plus percent of the delegates. he got 47 here in illinois, which was tailor-made for him. illinois's a state where he should have had 52, 53% of the vote in which case that -- when you hit that threshold, you get all t

fundraisers in his hometown today while mitt romney campaigned down the road in rose mont this morning, romney may have bigger worries than president obama. he bumped up his visit to illinois to monday. this is what he told candidates. >> i need you to show up and vote, and you can vote multiple times by getting a friend to go with you. i know this is chicago, i had to clarify that. >> ha, ha, mitt romney poking if you know at election fraud. mitt romney is in slight bit of damage control in a sense, after the wins by santorum, going to illinois, an expensive state in terms of media market. he is trying get a leg up. >> is concerned, there was a poll that showed he had a slight lead. we saw this in michigan and ohio, states that were supposed to be easy for him, and santorum made it tighter. they were barely in in mississippi, he was there just enough to raise the expectations and they are actually trying app play for this. >> it's all about the economy. i was reporting on monday and tuesday, a lot of manufacturing bomb going on, all the things that obama has been trying leverage in his campa

-proclaimed senator racked up zero delegates in puerto rico sunday while mitt romney got a big boost in illinois. alisha, what we've seen here is that now, mitt romney has well over 10% of his lead just from these territories. what happened in puerto rico? >> i think the big story that everyone missed was governor luis fortuna calling out his troops. he scheduled his primary the same day as this presidential be primary meaning his entire party was showing up voting for mitt romney. what you now see romney doing is saying i won puerto rico. clearly i can doing well with latinos. just because you win the island of puerto rico doesn't mean su win puerto ricans in the i 4 corridor. >> jimmy, does this victory have any legs? >> not really. puerto ricans traditionally vote democratic. cuban-americans traditionally vote republican. you can't vote into an island and tell people they can't speak the language and expect to carry the people. so that's a problem for rick santorum. mitt romney did what he needed to do, fine. doesn't mean a hell of a lot. now we'll go to april and d.c., maryland and some of t

to be particularly hard for romney, frankly. i've never bought the idea that a private equity guy will fix the economy, when the numbers are getting better, it's harder to make that case. >> that is anni interesting poi. if we talk about romney, he is the one that is supposed to be the money guy, business guy, this might seem to weirdly help santorum, news like this. >> you know, i think, we over stated how much the economy played well for romney. that was a theme that his campaign put out. i looked at the exit polls from ohio, those voters that were woerp eed about the economy, th was 73% of the voters they only sided with santorum over him. the idea that he is a businessman and help the economy is over stated. >> i agree with that, the thing that we miss about the economy in the story the last few years is not how it helped romney, it's how it has been the message for the republican party. it's look at the unemployment rate and how much insecurity do you feel right now, he is the president, he made it worse. that's the only message he wants to run on. the last month, the jobs report came
